Hello all

I support the immediate aims of Matthew Gruen's proposal and hope it
gets adopted as a SoC project, but for the 'web2.0' aspects I largely
agree with Nick Bowler.

As a package author, checking disparate wiki pages to help people is
more work than answering emails. Also, if people have install problems
with (other peoples) packages on Windows and post a problem report to
the Cafe, I'll often have a look to see if I can help as it isn't much
trouble provided the dependency depth is near 0. I certainly won't be
able to do that if there is a switch over to wiki for reporting

Best wishes
